Franz Fischlin (58) imagined the beginning of today’s “Tagesschau” differently: the screen behind him, the moderator, was apparently already after work. For while the SRF man greeted the audience, a large black area could be seen in the background. The technical problems made even the most experienced news anchor seem a little nervous. After pausing briefly and waving his hands restlessly, the presenter “Tagesschau” quickly explained to the audience.
While the words “Windows is starting up again” were displayed in the background, Fischlin said: “There should be a picture of Lara Gut here – how she looks. Unfortunately this is not yet available, but maybe we have the technical problems under control. “
Problem solved in minutes
The mechanics did not abandon the SRF flagship: starting up the computer apparently solved the problem. Because after a contribution to the desperate cucumbers who continue to suffer from the corona measures, the black area suddenly disappeared again – and the famous “Tagesschau” logo was shown.
The technical glitch was obviously not hidden from the public. A Twitter user asked, “If the Göppel wants to install an update at the stupidest moment.” Another seems to know about the problems with Microsoft’s operating system. “If Windows does not do it the way it should,” he writes, adding a laughing emoji.
In response to a question from BLICK, SRF spokesman Stefan Wyss stated: “Unfortunately, there was a problem with the studio technology right at the start of the broadcast, which also affected the display of the monitor and necessitated a restart. . “
